The Christian Dior show at the V&A looks set to be the most popular in the museum’s history after it extended its sellout run for another seven weeks.

Christian Dior: Designer Of Dreams, best-known for his feminine “New Look” silhouette, will now continue until September 1.

Meanwhile, fellow actress Marion Cotillard demonstrated how to work the cycling short trend in the winter months with a chic quilted bum bag to hand.

Next week, the largest Dior retrospective ever mounted in Britain opens in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. 'Dior, Designer of Dreams' is set to be a cultural highlight of 2019. Pity Dior’s incumbent designer, Maria Grazia Chiuri, who has to compete with the shock and awe of Dior’s 1947 New Look and make current Dior seem equally as exciting and glamorous.
